Restaurant Is not kid friendly.....we waited an hour and a half for table to be ready......which is normal in Destin for the month of July .....while waiting ......we noticed all families with children were also waiting.....they prefer to seat larger groups and adults first over families with children....doesn't matter who arrives first or not........needless to say all families with children...

There are two Dewey Destin restaurants. This one is off Calhoun Street and is on the water. It is a fairly small place, very casual, which I love. People in shorts, bathing suits - etc - enjoying the beach and water. We had lunch, and got there at a pretty good time. We did not have a wait. We sat... More

This place was highly recommended by the concierge at the resort we were staying at. Dewey Destin's does live up to the hype. You know the food must be good, when on a Thursday night they tell you that the wait is 2 hours. Fortunately we only had to wait about half that time. The restaurant has a very casual... More

Dewey Destin's has two locations. I tried the location off Calhoun St., which is on the water and looks to the west toward Crab Island. The atmosphere was great, outdoor tables and the sun setting in the background. What isn't so great is waiting in a long line to order and then standing on the deck waiting for other diners... More

Had heard so many good things about this place from friends and was so excited about going here. Went for lunch before we registered for our resort. Had to wait about 10 minutes to be seated. Went up to the outside deck and what a view. Ordered from the lunch menu but was really disappointed when food arrived. Shrimp were... More

We recently ate here for lunch on vacation. We chose to set outside and had a great view. The restaurant seems a little run down and needs to be cleaned up a bit. The food was great especially the Hushpuppies. We all got something off the lunch special menu and the portion sizes were generous. It was my daughters favorite... More

I had done a lot of research on restaurants before our Destin vacation and this place was highly recommended so we definitely wanted to try it. Several reviews had suggested not judging by location/looks of the place. How true this was! So there is a Dewey Destin that we passed on the main strip several times but that is not... More

Third year for us to go back and probably about the sixth time to eat at this little hidden gem. There's no air conditioning which was fine for us we enjoy watching the boats come by from crab island. The food has always been wonderful. Soft shell crab sandwich is awesome and my 9 year old got crab claws and... More

On our honeymoon in Destin we asked some locals where we should eat, and they suggested Dewey Destin's. I ordered the pecan crusted grouper and it was amazing! About 4 years later we were on vacation with our whole family an hour away. On our last night there we suggested that everyone make the hour long drive to go eat... More

We had to wait a little over an hour but that was expected after calling ahead and reading previous TA reviews. The addition of drinks and appetizers while you waited helped to pass the time. You have to try the smoked tuna dip!! Once inside the service was great and the food was worth the wait.
